Belief is a challenge, there no doubt about that. Many find that their faith is taken aback by the things we see around us and the circumstances of life. Often the most earnest question asked of Christians is 'how does a good God allow such suffering?'

So, what to do, to regret or not to regret? Well, rather than forget your regrets, leverage your regrets to your advantage.

If you or your life is "stuck", then it is well worth looking back to see if there is anything unforgiven in your past. Remember to forgive everyone, especially yourself. So many people trudge through their lives burdened with guilt for this or that, forgive yourself and let it go.

Why It's OK to Walk Away From People (If You Have to)

Katie Portman | Posted 01.09.2016 | UK Lifestyle
Katie Portman

I look for the good in people, even in the worst kind of people. Even in the ones who don't probably deserve it. Which is lovely in many ways, but as I've learned over the years, it can also be a very painful place to willingly put and keep yourself in.

Zara Walker | Posted 08.07.2016 | UK Parents

Parenthood isn't the hardest thing on earth, it is wonderful and brings with it a lot of joy. However it is the emotional torture we put ourselves through continually that beings to weigh us down, or gives us the feeling of being mentally and physically tired.

I have a number of arthritic conditions that cause me daily pain but this dulls into insignificance when compared to the physical pain and mental anguish I am going through now as I mourn both my parents.

Victoria Ward | Posted 11.05.2015 | UK Lifestyle

Somewhere along the way of growing up, we lose that special talent of not taking things personally and we get so serious about any little offence. We don't let other people off the hook with forgiveness easily, and we harbour ill feelings for a long, often unhealthy, amount of time.

Contemplating Forgiveness of the Unforgivable

Ceri Eldin | Posted 01.04.2015 | UK
Ceri Eldin

It is not a question of whether we can forgive a seemingly unforgivable atrocity; we, as the third party to events, cannot. Yet, the increased interest that forgiveness has been given over the preceding decades, as the post-witness era draws closer, is a telling sign that by exploring forgiveness there may be much to learn.

I wish you knew the pain you've put me through the last 26 years. The suicide attempts I once made on my life. The memories that haunt me. How I spent many years believing I was worthless. How I still hear your voice in my head sometimes telling me that I'm stupid.

Open Relationships for Monogamous People

Louisa Leontiades | Posted 28.08.2014 | UK Lifestyle
Louisa Leontiades

There's a rumour going around, propagated by [some] polyamorists, that polyamory is a superior ideology to monogamy.
